Dove tailing with the top two US Atomic Generals being dismissed, various missing Nuke tales and Christine Lagarde’s weird 7/20 speech that nothing happened, I tried to do a cross match on the Lunar-Gregorian calender and 7/20 could also be Aug 25.

T-3 days and close enough to 9/11 for propaganda purposes.

How is it spun? Generals hatched a plan to get nukes to Isis or Generals planned a domestic coup? Isis gets Pakistani nukes?

Remember, the master planners of 911 are still out there.

GMO Production in China Halted

End of the line: GMO production in China halted

Published time: August 21, 2014 11:56

Reuters / Stringer

In a surprise U-turn, China’s Ministry of Agriculture has decided not to continue with a program which developed genetically-modified rice and corn. Some environmentalists say public concerns about GM crops played a key role in the decision.

On August 17, when these permits were up for renewal, the Ministry of Agriculture decided not to extend them. In 2009, the ministry’s Biosafety Committee issued approval certificates to develop the two crops, rice and corn.

Developed by the Huazhong Agricultural University, near Wuhan, it was hoped that the GMO strains would help to reduce pesticide use by 80 percent, while raising yields by as much as 8 percent, said Huang Jikun, the chief scientist with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, told Reuters in 2009. It is illegal to sell genetically-modified rice on the open market in China.

However in July, GM rice was found on sale in a large supermarket in Wuhan, which is just across the Yangtze River from the Huazhong Agricultural University, where the product was developed, which caused a public outcry.

“We believe that loopholes in assessing and monitoring [GMO] research, as well as the public concern around safety issues are the most important reasons that the certifications have not been renewed,” Wang Jing, a Greenpeace official based in Beijing, wrote in an email to ScienceInsider.

According to the South China Morning Post, state television commissioned tests on five packets of rice, which were picked at random, and found three contained genetically-modified rice. It is illegal to sell or commercially grow GM rice in mainland China. The safety certificates issued in 2009 only allowed the rice to be planted for research purposes, but never for sale on the open market.

The strain, which was found, was one of two developed by Dr. Zhang Oifa, who is a professor at the Huazhong Agricultural University. He said, “it was not impossible” for the seeds to be put on to the open market.

“You can’t say [the seeds] were leaked on purpose. It’s possible the seed companies have taken away the seeds and reproduced them illegally,” he said, as reported by the South China Morning Post.

However, Huang Jikun also believes that public opinion was not the only reason why the project was shelved. He stated that China is reaching self-sufficiency in terms of rice production, so therefore there was no point in producing genetically modified versions. China exports very little rice as almost all of it is consumed within its domestic market. Huang also admitted,“rising public concerns [about the] safety of GM rice” likely also played a role.

Cong Cao, who is an associate professor at the University of Nottingham in the UK, was scathing of the decision. Writing in ‘The Conversation’ journal, he said the move “signals a major blow to the fight to establish GM food in China.”

Cao believes there is no logic behind the judgment adding that “Anti-Western sentiment has been judged more convincing than a raft of studies endorsing the merits of agro-biotechnology. Government support for GM food is dwindling fast, and it seems safe to say that the opportunity to commercialize GM rice – and with it the chance to help address some of China’s most urgent problems – is all but gone.”

The production of GM corn has not received as much skepticism, as it is mainly fed to livestock, according to Huang Jikun. Nevertheless, like rice, it has also not had its license renewed.

Deflation’s Final Curtain Call (Part 2)

Posted by Mr.GoldBug @ 18:42 on August 22, 2014  


“Indeed, the Fed’s loose monetary policy known as QE has all but blunted the impact of the final deflationary leg of the 60-year cycle for the financial sector.  Equity prices were largely exempt from the final 5-6 years of the deflationary long-wave.  The 2008 credit crash was essentially the “super crash” that many long-wave analysts were calling for.  It arrived a few years ahead of schedule but was still within the final “hard down” phase of the 60-year cycle (defined as the last 10 percent of the cycle’s duration).  The recovery since the 2008 super crash was fierce and unprecedented, thanks largely to the scope and scale of the Fed’s intervention.


Now that the 60-year cycle is winding down we can see the last vestiges of its deflationary pressure in certain inflation-sensitive commodities.  The crude oil price has been in decline since June, as you can see in the following graph.  Since a wide range of retail consumer prices are based on the oil price, the lower the price of oil goes, the better it will bode for the retail economic outlook entering 2015 once the new 60-year up-cycle kicks off. ”

re “a Jump in Inflation” and SILVER COINS

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 14:59 on August 22, 2014

I’m hearing older coins like Mercury dimes Walking liberty halves standing Quarters etc are worth more than melt value.

Silver I think TPTB have an easier time suppressing it, because its the poor mans gold, and they may be sitting on bad real estate investments, licking their wounds.

Gold is the gov’ts, bank’s and rich mans investment, and they don’t ever run out of investment funds.


ok, so if Silver is the poor mans Gold, my thinking is, a Lot of people out there will not be able to afford $1300 an oz Gold..

so say, the poorer people can only spend $200. $500 or $750 ..???

what will they buy? ..Gold? …or Silver…my Guess they will buy Silver because you get more ounces of it for your money? … they probably wont be Buying $20 liberties, saint gaudens or Gold Eagles ??..

but probably, Pre ’64 5ocent Franklins, walking Liberty’s, Mercury dimes or Silver Eagles/one oz rounds..


and yes, Pre 1964 coins in my opinion are always worth more than melt value, ….ha!..besides they are easy to recognize as real, and do not have to be assayed like 100 oz bars n such…


and to think they call it “JUNK SILVER” …Hahahahaha

“Gasoline Is Way Under Priced, Its Just Another Controlled Commodity


ok, so if Gasoline is way under priced, then Silver should be MUCH higher .. just thinking outside the box!!!

He’s still a joke.

Nothing about silver and the silver manipulators says silver is going higher anytime soon. Great buy here or $2 lower, who knows? Copper was up 5% this week and silver was down what 2% at least?

Industrial metal? Nope. Monetary metal? Nope. What is silver anyway besides manipulated? Absolutely frustratingly exhausting.

I’m sure someone can come up with a chart to explain it all.4f33beea32

Soda Bottle Deposits Back In The day

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 17:01 on August 22, 2014  

They used to refill them. The small ones were 2 cents I think, same as a postage stamp. The bigger bottles were 5 cents, same as a newspaper. Deposit bottles today should be much much higher, like .75 to a $1 to equal the old ones.

My friend Geno and I bought our first car a ’48 Chevy with $25 worth of soda bottles we got from relatives friends etc. Also, stores that sold soda had locked cages where the bottles were stored until pick up. Like Copper these days. Valuable enough to attract thieves.

My little silver dime would buy I slice of pizza. Shocked was I when the price increased to .15 per slice or 2 for a quarter. For you math guy’s that’s a whole pie for a silver dollar.  Then it became .20 per slice and then .25 per slice. All that time my little silver dime was depreciating in value.

Mr. Goldbug Re: Silver Dimes

Posted by Samb @ 15:32 on August 22, 2014  

OK, But we are measuring now in a time of LOW silver prices.  Also, I don’t know if taxes on gasoline were at this level back then. I’m going to have to E-Mail Mr.Bo Polny and try to get an answer to this dilemma.


Posted by Mr.Copper @ 15:22 on August 22, 2014  

Look at the Russell 2000:

Check the Dow:

If the general markets don’t have a decent correction, and momentum drives them higher like what happened with real estate, this is one of the things the Fed might be worrying about.

Note the “brake tapping” words, “we might raise rates”. I’ve been watching these various stupid bozos objectives for decades.

Gasoline Is Way Under Priced, Its Just Another Controlled Commodity

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 15:11 on August 22, 2014  

Diesel was always historically far cheaper than gasoline, because its more crude, less refined. Diesel is NOT NOT supposed to be MORE expensive than highly refined gasoline, with a bunch od EPA restrictions and additives in it.

There is only ONE explanation…..The PTB moved some of the poor guy consumer’s gasoline costs onto the wealthier business mans diesel fuel costs. Simple welfare, or smoothing, equality, or call it what you want. Take from the rich and give to the poor.

Another thing they like to do…Is make things they don’t want you to use, COST more. Many homes are heated with Diesel. They want people to change to nat gas. Look at the high price of cigarettes. It’s not natural.

The central planners are in the middle of a big complicated bunch of variable problems at the same time. I offered to help them ten plus years ago on the G-E forum, but got no response.

I posted for them to register, get a handle, and I’d help. I KNOW what the main problems are. They probably know what I know, but don’t want to go against their old objectives.

Gallon of gas is $3.19 in NJ. Redo the math.

2 silver dimes …

Posted by Mr.GoldBug @ 14:30 on August 22, 2014  

in the past (2) silver dimes would pretty much always buy a gallon of Gas or gallon of Milk,

as of right now the average price of gas in my city is ”



  • Regular is several cents lower than last week’s price. The average price in California for regular gasoline decreased 2.8-cents from the previous week. The average statewide price for regular was $3.898.
  • California Gasoline Statistics & Data




so either gas has to come down, or silver has to go up .. because right now…it does not add up!!!

$1.4012 is the rounded silver value for the 1946-1964 silver dime on August 22, 2014. This is usually the value used by coin dealers when selling these coins at melt value.



(2) silver dimes melt value adds up to be about $2.80

Gallon of Gas average in my city $3.91

The average price in California for regular gasoline is $3.898.

= something wrong with this picture!!


The average price for milk was $3.50 in December, according to the most recently available data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“Milk Could Go Up 60 Cents a Gallon”


if that happened …Gallon of Milk would be $4.10 per gallon


but the experts say; “No Inflation” …you be the Judge?

My personal opinion, Silver is Undervalued at today’s price .. my humble opinion only!

$SILVER should be the most sensitive to “a Jump in Inflation” …

re Odds of a FED rate hike soon…ZERO!

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 14:10 on August 22, 2014  

CNBC guy brought up a good point. If the Fed raises rates it could suggest a jump in inflation, that is giving gold a lift today. lets not forget the ’69-’79 run. Rates went 6% to 21% as Gold went $140 to $800.
